Can you list any steps you have taken? Which file you are trying to install? Any info, really, would be beneficial, as it is, there is nothing for us to go off of. I can only guess or give you some suggestions:
grab the tarball, read the README/INSTALL instructions and follow them. Did you install Slackware yourself? How familiar with linux are you? Please give us some more info

>>>How familiar with linux are you
i am an idiot i can spell Linux

>>>Did you install Slackware yourself
someone chated me thru it on aim but he is gone

>>>grab the tarball
you lost me

i watched as the slackware installed itself and saw it putting both NS comunicator as well as mozilla on the machine.

i THINK my gui is xfree86?

>>>Can you list any steps you have taken
i login startx and type mozilla in one of the boxes. nothing happens. however when i type gaim, it loads fine.

i wil look at the links in your signiture above.

thanks for any and all help.
